Claridge brings "Tribeca" to downtown Ottawa

The sales centre originally used to sell Claridge Plaza was moved to the corner of Lisgar and Metcalfe this past week, where it will be reworked into a NYC-style loft as part of Claridge's latest project, Tribeca (perhaps better known as the site of the now defunct Portrait Gallery):

No doubt buoyed by the recent feeding frenzy over Claridge Plaza 3, Claridge is now moving full steam ahead with downtown Ottawa's largest and most ambitious residential development: two 27-storey towers of NYC-style "lofts" which are set to include office space, a major grocer, daycare and townhomes fronting Lisgar Street. The sales centre is scheduled to open February 2010. More details to follow in another post.
